as we look ahead to wednesday night with mitt romney trailing in the polls, the fact that he is sharing the stage with the president of the united states, does this offer a first-time candidate, not first time but in his case but someone who gets all the way to the end there, does it offer that person the credibility and potential bump in the polls just for having shown up and being there at the debate? >> absolutely. because you'll see this guy on the level with an elected president of the united states. that's why lyndon johnson in 1964 and richard nixon as president in 1972 went through huge machinations to make sure there would be no debates. they didn't want to give their opponents that kind of an edge. >> so as you look at history, what has worked and what has not, what do you, michael, see as being the keys to success for each of these two candidates come wednesday? >> well, in barack obama's case assuming that he is leading, essentially do no harm. people have a fairly well-developed view of who he is and what he will say. mitt romney, the degree of difficulty for him in this de

republicans are saying that if he does not have a game-changing night, that the trajectory of this campaign will not change, and that's going to be bad for romney campaign. >> right. each of them have really sort of gotten their practice in, one could argue. we talked wins and losses, expectations. both sides basically trying to play it down a little buiit. it's better to manage expectations than to not accomplish expectations. what do you think the voters are expecting? are they expecting something civilized? are they expecting attacks from each separate candidate, amy? >> i think they're expecting their issues to be addressed and to be addressed thoroughly and convincingly. but i love debates, because you have these completely unexpected moments, like when al gore, in his debates in 2000 with george bush, was sighing and rolling his eyes and walked out onstage with this crazy clown face, and that ended up sort of overwhelming the debate, another debate, where with hillary clinton, when her competitor was running for the senate, crossed the stage in a physical image of intimidation. i thin
that will come to a handful of states. >> thank you, granite staters, for sending mitt romney to the white house and barack obama back to chicago. [cheering] >> reporter: the campaign shifts into a different stage this week, with wednesday night's high-stakes showed own showdown between about the barack obama and mitt romney. >> every change that has happened in a debate, if you look at the history, it's changed because of somebody's mannerisms or style -- they did badly or well. >> reporter: both candidates will spend the next few days in intense sessions. romney may have the most on the line. his campaign is looking that the for a chance for a game changer. abc news, washington. >> one of the country's best-imeen newspaper mat nats day died. arsure solsburger was 86. he page passed away. his paper published the pentagon papers. known as punch, the former marine captain was a fierce defender of the freedom of the press. he increased the paper's circulation and corporate revenues rose to $1.7 billion. president obama and his wife issued a there -- tribute saying, quote, arthur's legacy lives on
in washington. let me start with mr. romney's divorce. why did he pick paul ryan for his running mate? certainly not for better or worse. mitt spends his days and nights acting as if he's out there all alone, that he never hooked up with ryan in the first place. i get it. romney doesn't want to get dragged down by his political mate's push for getting rid of medicare. he acts like ryan has no hold on him, but it's not the way it works. romney has slowly gotten the word that the voter out there thought the two had things worked out, that romney and ryan were in this thing together. well, they're not. romney is dying. he can't stand being tied to ryan, and all that budget cutting baggage of his. for his part, ryan is feeling the taint of having a running mate who is unwilling to stand with him, unwilling to be his kind of politician. a conviction politician. so trouble in paradise. mitt's dying to be single again, so is ryan. we all know that politics makes strange bedfellows but the word is out this pair, romney and ryan, are sleeping in separate rooms. i'm joined by msnbc political analyst howar
for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to change the dynamics in this race. we know he's going to show up prepared, disciplined and aggressive, even tim pawlenty said that he's as good as it gets when it comes to debating. but the question is whether or not he's going to be able to talk to the american people specifically about what his plans are for this country. that's been a huge deficit for him over the course of this campaign. no specifics, no details. so i think that is part of the burden he carries next wednesday night. >> i suppose one of the problems for you is that barack obama is in the strange position of being the quite clear favorite. i don't think many incumbent presidents have that going into debates but people say i saw a poll this morning, he's up nearly 60% of americans believe obama will win the debates. that's always a rather precarious place to go into a debate, isn't it, as the clear favorite because expectation levels can often exceed performance. >> that is definitely

're going to see in mitt romney? he's touched other opponents. he's challenged them to a $10,000 bet. he's lost his cool, he's shouted them down. is what what's he's going to do on wednesday night? >> no, i don't think he's going to do that. the way he can win the debate is if he prepares very vigorously. i think z president ron portman, he's got to get that script, memorize it and hold to it. if he does that, i think there's some chance that the press wants to say he's done well, he conceivably could wayne the debate. he also benefits from going in there with very low expectations. >> are the expectations too high on the president? >> of course the expectations are too high for the president. five of the last six ibt presidents who faced challengers in first debates have lost. history says that can easily happen. only two challengers then went on to win the election. secondly, the president has not debated in four years. i assume he's preparing, but not as much as romney because he has some other things he has to do. so his ek peksations a-- expect way too high. >> romney is polling wor
